Asking For Trouble is a range of cute illustrated stationery, accessories and gifts designed by Marceline Smith.
Trained as a printmaker, I found a new outlet for my love of colour and pattern by designing a range of characters and patterns for stationery, fabric and other gifts. Starting with doodles from my sketchbook, I create a cute and colourful collection of handmade and printed products including cards, notepads, badge sets, bags, gift wrap and brooches.
My work is very much inspired by Japan and my visits there. I love the mix of happy kawaii characters on every corner juxtaposed by the traditional patterns of kimono and chiyogami paper. Most of all, my aim is to make you smile!
